76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Bathroom bandit

Some filcher swiped a guy’s phone he left in a Columbia Street restaurant on Nov. 20, police said.

The 32-year-old told police he left his silver iPhone in the eatery’s bathroom between Woodhull and Summit streets around 11 am and when he returned to get it, the device was gone.

The guy then tracked his pricey phone using an application, which showed it was near Avenue I and E. 28th Street, officials said.

Too quick

A worm took a woman’s bag in a Beard Street store on Nov. 19, cops said.

The punk grabbed the victim’s purse when she left it unattended for about 10 minutes inside the store near Halleck Street around 7 pm, authorities said, before running off with the bag containing her license, hospital-identification card, Metropolitan Transportation Authority card, and three credit cards.

Caught in the act

Cops cuffed a guy for trespassing on the city’s Lorraine Street apartment complex on Nov. 20.

Police banned the 51-year-old with four active warrants from the building near Columbia Street, but spotted him walking inside with burglar and graffiti tools in hand, authorities said.

Street snakes

A pair of goons attacked a guy while he was walking home from work on Clinton Street on Nov. 20, police said.

The victim told cops he was strolling between Bush and Centre streets around 4:30 am when the two ruffians approached him, punched him in the neck and face, and grabbed his wallet from his pants’ pocket. The man said his attackers looked to be about 23-years-old, authorities said.

Bad parking spot

A lout broke into a guy’s parked car on Kane Street and stole his laptop from inside on Nov. 18, police said.

The 29-year-old told police he parked his 2016 Jeep near Columbia Street, but the carjacker broke the passenger-side window before running off with the victim’s expensive Macbook Air, cops said.
